108th Power of Paint Party: Anatomy of my Chairs

Thanks for Sharing!

Welcome Paint Lovers!!!

My goal for last week was to get our kitchen table and chairs functional before the kiddos went back to school.  Weeks ago I started by removing the white paint from my table top and staining it a deep espresso brown and then moved onto painting our chairs. 

You can read about the homemade chalk paint recipe I used on the chairs here.

To finish them off I used some wax, but I couldn’t decide if I wanted to give them a light sanding.  I’m sure I’ll distress them and beat my kiddos to it.

I recovered the chair seats with a canvas drop cloth (cheap, durable and neutral).

I’m working on a little window makeover in the space & then I’ll show it to you all together.


When I originally scored them FREE on Craigslist years ago they were a light honey-stained wood…

then they went through a black phase…

and now they’re feeling a little blue…


Who knows how they’ll feel in another 2 years.


So what have you been painting???  Anything in these shades?
